1st Friday at the Glass Forge
First Friday in Grants Pass ( our local Art Walk) came and went very quickly. I just finished getting all of my images up on the wall, all the 'Show' Calendars in the basket and arrived on the scene just about in time to catch the evening crowd. Can you imagine trying to hang frames in a glass shop full of beautiful, fragile pieces where I had to reach over, under and through to reach the wall? Marcia had to steady me on the stepladder occasionally just so I wouldn't crash into anything. Was I ever grateful when all were hung and labeled! I enjoyed sharing my calendar images, especially with some people new to the area who seemed interested in learning a little local history. Even sold one of my favorite framed images to a friend from our camera club.
Now begins all the 'promotion' as I will only be up on the wall for a few weeks and want everyone who might be interested in the photography and/or local History to take a look. And i have promised 10% of framed print sales will be donated to our Local Library which is always needing funds to survive.
Today I did some trading with Steve, the kindly manager at the Glass Forge : Calendars for Glass Ornaments. And my heavyweight 'Show' Calendars made such an impression on the Museum Gallery's manager that Cindy K. asked if I would put some on display at Gallery One and come in as a 'Giftshop Artist'. Happily done as I do want those to get sold before we get deep into 2016 (and they look great as the featured item on the checkout counter).
